Ever notice how a dog looks like its owner? Doesn’t yours? Or if you don’t have one, think of someone who does or even the next person walking their dog. That was once true about my cocker spaniel, Ebony, because we both had curly hair. Amazing, isn’t it? And sometimes funny.
Or maybe it’s personalities. Whatever it is, we tend to connect more with those who are like us, wouldn’t you agree?
You’ve probably heard we become like those we hang out with. They influence us just like we do them. So it’s pretty important who we spend time with, right?
Well, it’s the same with Jesus. Galatians 5:22-23 says, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.” The more time we spend with Him, the more we become like Him. The more we’ll look like Him. It will actually change our lives. And people will start seeing a difference in us and want to spend time with Him, too. It may even become contagious. Now isn’t that the coolest thing?
